I cannot get my receiver to play sound for my tv. Switched to aux to play iPod and now tv sound won't return. I switched input back to TV.

Technician's Assistant: What does your TV screen look like when you try to connect your iPod? Is there anything at all displayed?

Technician's Assistant: Is your iPod connected to the TV, or is it connected to a power outlet?

I had it off when using iPod. Now I can see TV image but no sound. iPod connected to receiver.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.

What's the brand and model number of the receiver?

What's the model number off of the back of the TV?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Denon. I don’t see a model number.
Samsung tv. Mounted to wall so I cannot see behind it.
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 4 months ago

The Denon will have a model number right on the front of the receiver. Can you get that? Something like: AVR-1506, etc....

Hmmm, that's not it. This is a receiver? Model number should be on the top left corner.

Thank you. Now please tell me what sources are connected to the TV (ex: cable box, DVD player, etc.), and what source has lost sound (Cable Box)?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Cable box, cd, iPod dock. iPod works, can’t get tv to have sound. Not sure what input I should be on. It’s currently on the TV input Though I’ve tried them all
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
cable box
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 4 months ago

Okay, first try rebooting the cable box. Shut the Denon and TV off then unplug the cable box power cord for 10 seconds and plug it back in. Give the box a few minutes to reboot and then turn the system on. Once the box finishes rebooting let me know if you have sound.

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 4 months ago

So if you can't unplug anything how did you reboot the cable box??

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
From settings on the remote
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 4 months ago

You can't reboot a cable box that way. I am afraid I won't be able to help you.

it is model # 43UJ6300-UA and was bought this past September. I had some difficulty getting it to find the dvr when I first got it, but I eventually got it working. When a grand daughter recently visited, she left if in a state where I could see no English on the set. I put in a request on Google and received the web address for an lg site which, after a lot of button pushing, solved that problem. Now I can watch tv fine, but can't reach the dvr.
